Homeschool Education

Home Education with One or More Virtual Classes

If you want your home education student to take one or more virtual classes, you must register your home education program and then request one or more courses from Edgenuity or FLVS Flex. These part-time enrollments may begin at any date, not necessarily at the beginning of the semester. The courses may be taught by an instructor employed by FLVS or Edgenuity, not a local teacher.

 

  • Visit the home education page on our district website: https://www.citrusschools.org/departments/student_services/student_services and click Online Home Education Intent Form in the middle of the page under Home Education Links. If you need assistance or have questions, please contact District Student Services in the Lecanto school complex or call 352-527-0090 and ask to speak with Beckie Baker. Once your paperwork is complete, your student will be withdrawn from the brick-and-mortar school and registered as a home education student. At that point, the parent/guardian is directing the education program for the student—there is not a counselor assigned to assist you in selecting courses.

     

  • Once you’ve established your home education program, you may request classes from Edgenuity, the provider for our middle and high school students in Citrus eSchool and/or from FLVS Flex, the provider for our elementary students.

     

  • From November 1st through November 30th, you may request full-time admission to Citrus eSchool for your student. Citrus eSchool is the virtual school in the Citrus County School District. Or you may continue your home education program for the remainder of the year or longer. Semester 1 FLVS Flex or Edgenuity courses will need to be complete prior to the beginning of semester 2 in January if enrolling in Citrus eSchool. To request enrollment in eSchool for semester 2, complete the New School Enrollment form in Skyward Family Access between November 1 and November 30.
